Addressing technical challenges across ADAS and AV development at AutoSensONLINE

AutoSensONLINE. Going live on Tuesday 23 November 2021

AutoSensONLINE is being delivered virtually to wrap up 2021 by building on themes from the in-person Brussels conference and our previous online events. Bringing together further key topics in this disruptive time for the automotive industry. Addressing technical challenges across ADAS and AV development is an overarching theme of AutoSensONLINE and participants will takeaway insights from both presentations and panel discussions to help them deal with their own engineering challenges they might encounter.

The online 1-day event will be packed with content and live with a brand new 2-track agenda of expert panels, technical case studies and discussion. View Agenda >>

The 7 core themes being discussed in-depth include:

  • Innovations in RADAR
  • Benchmarking Perception Methods
  • Computer Vision and Deep Learning
  • Improving Sensing in Challenging Environments
  • Manufacturing Considerations and Reliable Software Standards
  • Addressing Complexities in ADAS Development
  • Overcoming HD mapping challenges

Opening the show, you will hear from industry leaders Daimler and LG, providing the Tier 1 and OEM perspectives on developing a front ADAS camera and overcoming technical challenges. 

We are thrilled to welcome back Paul-Henri Matha, from Volvo Cars, who joined us in 2020, with a popular presentation on integrating sensors into headlamps. He is back to build on additional challenges for exterior lighting and power consumption, and stakes for OEMs, as a highly important part of the EV story.

Another critical challenge is one we face when the same image sensors are used for both computer and human vision. Matthew Hellewell, Principal Image Quality Engineer at Arm, will explore how we can avoid sacrificing image quality for flexibility in our hardware choices and software algorithms. 

We’re pleased to be able to give our speakers, who were unable to join us in Brussels, the chance to share their perspectives with the AutoSens Community. You can catch Dima Sosnovksy from Huawei and Dengxin Dai at MPI for Informatics discussing different takes on benchmarking perception methods, plus Sergey Velichko of onsemi sharing their developments in HDR image sensors.

Three case studies from different levels of the supply chain form a technical session on RADAR. We cannot wait to hear the various perspectives from GM, Bosch and new to the AutoSens Community, Zendar, on creating high resolution radar and developing superior radar and processing systems. 

Our MD here at AutoSens – Rob Stead – is particularly looking forward to hearing from Shane Elwart, who led global developments in ADAS and AV at two of the world’s largest OEM’s. Shane is now working on his own driverless transportation and will share details from his previous work, and his views on reality vs the executive expectations, and the symplexity of ADAS and AVs.

Three highly anticipated panel discussions throughout the day will no doubt serve as highlights of the agenda, with companies Toyota, Valeo, VW Group, NVIDIA, atlatec, CARIAD, Texas Instruments and many more, among those represented. These discussions will aim to answer important questions such as “Will deep learning be central to the next stages of development?”, “Will the challenges of advanced AI and limitations of deep learning mean otherwise?”, “How can the challenges of high-precision HD mapping be addressed?” or “How can we solve the problems impeding growth in advanced sensor deployment?”

Rounding off the day’s agenda, we invite our Community to join us at the live-streamed AutoSens Awards, with six brand new categories to recognise achievement and creativity in our sector. The Awards celebrate those that have successfully overcome the technical challenges and brought industry changing products to market or worked on novel research that could shape the future of the industry.
